He was born in 1795 in Miserden, married in 1818 at Winstone, and was farming in Miserden in 1841. After the two farms in Winstone and Quenington in 1851 he was farming over the county border in Worcestershire in 1861, where died in 1866 at the age of 71. His body was brought back to Winstone for burial. Some sons themselves went into farming. but not at Quenington.
